in reply to Showing the right POD via Pod::Usage

Pack the script pod in __DATA__ and use  -input => \*DATA

"-input" A reference to a filehandle, or the pathname of a file from wh +ich the invoking script's pod documentation should be read. It def +aults

Or save the pod in a var

my $script_pod = q{ ... }; open my($script_pod_fh), '<', \$script_pod; pod2usage( ... -input => $script_pod_fh );

    Perfect. Using the __DATA__ section didn't occur to me, and solves the problem.

    Thanks a lot!
